Dear Friends
Amid the continuing issues created for sporting events around the world by the COVID-19 virus, the organisers of the Mercedes-Benz PWA World Cup Sylt have taken the decision to cancel the 2020 edition and apply all resources to the 2021 event which will take place in the same period as usual.
This is a sad loss to the tour and we will miss visiting this historic windsurf location, but we all understand the realities of the circumstances we find ourselves in this year, and look forward to being able to return to Sylt in 2021.
You can read further information on the organisers Facebook page
We will bring you further news regarding PWA events as soon as we have it.
Kind regards


Western Australia

Dieter van der Eyken (Severne / Severne Sails) has just released the highlights of his annual winter trip to Western Australia…

Dieter van der Eyken: “Like nearly every winter I spent a fair bit of my time on the shores of W.A., being the home of Severne and one of the better places to train over the European winter it has become my winter retreat for nearly 7 years now.

Each season is different but every year the trip ends up being one of the highlights of the year. The consistent conditions, the laid-back vibe of the Australian people & the beers at sunset never get old. Living the van life to chase forecast around the coast gets people together who are likeminded in putting quality sailing above comfortable living.

Working part time for Severne I spent most of my time traveling between Perth - Geraldton & Margaret River. This past season was a particularly windy one when it was on, with lots of days sailing on 4.0 or even 3.6 in Geraldton and only a few classic evening sessions in Margaret River with light winds.

The video might not show all the best sessions there were this season, but it gives a glimpse of how sailing in W.A. was this winter.

Let's hope we can all enjoy the water time soon again!”
